busy bees!

I'd just like to announce that Chris and I are kicking butt on our house. We have been doing something everyday to get things done around here. Our goal is to have all of the "major" things done before our bundle of joy arrives in 4 short months. This is our list.... (also check out our bucket list a few posts down..)
  • Install new garage door and master bath door (both have been ordered)
  • Paint the nursery (happening this week)
  • Have crown molding installed (happening this week)
  • Plantation shutters (happening next week)
  • Set up the nursery (happening next weekend!)
  • Tear out old and gross bathtub (next month)
  • Buy new tub and stone for bath (next month)

So that is basically it along with the everyday obsession I have with nesting and making sure everything is "perfect" around our house. I am a terrible neat freak, I know I will have to loosen up when Kate comes but I absolutely love a clean house, clean laundry and a pretty garden.

I can't tell you how excited we are about Kate's room. My dad came up this past week and primed the room, its all covered in plastic just waiting to be painted in "Petal". We moved all of the furniture out that was in there and I've been a selling machine on craigslist. I will be posting pictures this week on Kate's blog of the progress of her room. Riley is very upset about us taking away his "lounging room". He misses sitting on his couch and staring at himself in the TV. We find him sitting in the middle of her room crying. Its pathetic but hilarious at the same time. This next week will be a huge week of progress at our house!! Stay tuned for some fun updates! :)

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby! They are a company out of Sweden and they make the most awesome Baby bottles.

10 years..

Friends. 
It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
